Ideas have consequences: that is the premise of those who have encouraged Christians to study worldview. In this interesting (and important) book, author Kevin Swanson traces the path by which age-old ideas – often difficult to understand in their original form– have worked their way down through history, first through literature and then into the culture, leading modern students to the point of apostasy. Identifying sixteen men (Aquinas, Descartes, Locke, Rousseau, Bentham, Emerson, Marx, Darwin, Nietzsche, Dewey, Sartre, Shakespeare, Hawthorne, Twain, Hemingway, and Steinbeck) whose ideas have influenced Western culture, he studies the man, analyzes his works and worldview. Then, setting them side-by-side with the Christian worldview, the author considers the fruits (“by their fruits you shall know them”). The implications are stunning. These men – themselves products of over one thousand years of Christian heritage – have nurtured a slow and steady apostasy that has worked its way throughout the modern “Christian” world during the last 300 years. This book is an in-depth look at the effect of humanistic thought on our culture, and a real eye-opener when it comes to understanding the effect it has had towards fundamentally changing society. 302 pgs, hb. ~ Janice

In case you haven’t noticed, much of the English-speaking world is in the process of abandoning the Christian faith in favor of the humanist world around them. We’re not surprised to learn that students coming from the public schools are in this category but, stunningly, the percentages are not much better for those coming from Christian schools. Only homeschoolers are showing a difference in that trend. Why? It seems they are more likely to have received a more foundational education in Christian worldview. This easy-to-use course from Kevin Swanson and Generations With Vision will help ensure that your children have that same, secure foundation under them as they mature into more interaction with the world. Designed as a self-study course for 5th – 8th graders, there are ten (ten weeks) well laid-out lessons--each providing text, memory verses, and follow-up activities, including vocabulary. Lessons cover who God is, where everything came from, ethics, your community, the family, the church, the civil government (and what good civil government is), and good law. Answers are in the back. This workbook is consumable and non-reproducible. 160 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
